Fear of Heights

Fear of Heights

It’s been very hard to find a lot about this VR experiment/game/installation in Japan, but it seems to bring home the true fear of heights many of us have.I love how shaky people got thinking they were high up even though they could likely have just walked across the board on the ground without a second thought.

I think this presents some *really* intriguing ideas of how scientists could test our cognitive/behavioral responses to fear and how we can treat them. It could revolutionize treatment for people with agoraphobia, fear of heights/spiders/etc.
